Mary Anne Gage Continues To Promote the Lies
Discussion: Mary Anne Gage Email – October 28, 2022

56.1 10 days after Mary Anne Gage announced suddenly and very unexpectedly that the applicant was now welcomed back to Connaught Public School. And that there is no more need or desire for the “MUST OCCUR” meeting and that she and Jacqueline Ravazzolo wish not to proceed with this matter any longer.

56.2 Mary Anne Gage on October 28, 2022 again suddenly and unexpectedly replied to an email that was originally sent to Kevin Maddalena way back in November 8, 2021.

I would like some clarification from you regarding the events of September 27, 2001 when our son spoke to Mrs. Ravazzolo in the hallway. Our son explained to me that Mrs. Ravazzolo knocked on your door/frame and you approached her and we will assume that she asked to speak to our son. You turned and told our son that “Mrs. Ravazzolo would like to speak to you outside” and you pointed towards the hallway. Our son got up and walked out to the hallway with Mrs. Ravazzolo and yourself following behind. After you 3 were in the hallway, you stated “When your done E* you can come back in” and you than went back into your class.

Is this an accurate account of what happened or is our son again lying? Because according to Mrs. Ravazzolo “she spoke with our son in the hallway with his teacher” implying you were there for the entire conversation.

Hello, I am reaching out as I understand you were inquiring about viewing your sons Ontario Student Record (OSR). To do this, I can set up at time and space for you to look through it at either the school or at the Board Office, which ever works best for you. Parents always have the right to review their child’s OSR.

As well, I understand that you have been reaching out to Mr. Maddalena regarding a situation from last school year. We have shared the process that both the teacher and principal followed when speaking with your son last year. We have also invited you on many occasions to discuss this further as it is challenging to problem solve via email. To clarify, both Mr. Maddalena and Ms. Ravazzolo spoke with your son together in the hallway, then your son worked through the situation with the other peer involved, then returned to class.

If you continue to have questions, we are happy to have a conversation as this would also allow your specific concerns to be supported and therefore provide the opportunity to move forward while continuing to work together in the best interests of your son.

I hope this clears up your questions, please let me know if you would like to arrange a time to review the OSR or to discuss this further.

56.3 Mary Anne Gage who was again acting in the official capacity for Kevin Maddalena was still willing to support and uphold his lie against a Black child/student from his class in an effort to shield Jacqueline Ravazzolo from being held accountable for her racist behavior.

56.4 By this point on October 28, 2022 the applicant was not even two months into the new 2022-23 school year and so far he was;

  1. Physically attacked twice by his Caucasian bully Hunter
  2. Hunted, targeted and discriminated against twice in two days by S. Matterson.
  3. Again targeted and discriminated against by Jacqueline Ravazzolo.
  4. The recipient of two DSBN employees attempted to unlawfully steal his cell phone.
  5. Threated to disciplinary action by sending him to the office by S. Matterson and Jacqueline Ravazzolo for not complying to their request to unlawfully turn over his phone.
  6. Implied to be a liar by his homeroom teacher Kevin Maddalena, who tried to discredit his recollection of Jacqueline Ravazzolo racist behavior a year later.
  7. Suspend/expelled by the DSBN, Warren Hoshizaki, Mary Anne Gage and Jacqueline Ravazzolo for 12 days without cause or explanation.
  8. Still not being given any actual explanation by the DSBN in regards to clarification about all the incidents from last year and current year.
  9. Witness to Mary Anne Gage continued bias behavior in protecting and justifying the racist and discriminatory behavior of Jacqueline Ravazzolo and now Kevin Maddalena.
  10. Witness to the sexist and racist promotion/appointment of the racist Jacqueline Ravazzolo to Principal of Connaught Public School following the abrupt departure of Christopher McInnis.

56.5 It was obvious to the parents that nothing had changed with their situation within the DSBN in regards to their son’s physical safety, mental and emotional health and overall educational experience and it appeared to be in fact getting worse.

56.6 The applicant parents figured that they had now run out of options and decided that they needed to remove their son from the poisonous environment created by Kevin Maddalena in his classroom and the dangerous conditions at Connaught Public School until certain issues were dealt with appropriately.

Our son will not be attending school this Monday and thereafter until this issue is resolved in regards to everyone calling him a liar. It is clear that the DSBN, yourself the principal and his teacher are all being very evasive in answering my questions that are very straight forward, simple and direct.

As this is now the second person who is implying that my son is a liar, and the fact that you expelled him for 12 days without cause or explanation. Clearly shows that the DSBN are targeting my son in an attempt to teach his parents a lesson for questioning your racist behavior. I would like complete transparency in regards to what was said, word for word by all parties involved in last year’s interaction with the liar, your principal, Marcus the bully, and my son.

56.7 That afternoon when the applicant returned home from school, he explained to his parents that his teacher Kevin Maddalena had been acting differently towards him since returning on the October 19, 2023. The applicant stated that he “feel uncomfortable in class.”

56.8 The applicant continued on stating that Kevin Maddalena “seemed to be ignoring me in class.” The parents questioned their son over what he meant by “ignoring” you? And asked him to give them an example.

56.9 The applicant stated that “If I raise my hand to answer a question, he does not pick me anymore.”

56.10 The parents explained to their son that he no longer needs to be concerned about feeling uncomfortable around Kevin Maddalena because he would not be attending class until a certain issue were resolved and dealt with appropriately.
